"I find it exceedingly odd that he is a fan of the Dead, though; to me the whole idea of Dark Star defines what the band IS to me."

If Dark Star "defines what the band IS", you are missing out on a lot of great music my friend.

"I'm not anywhere near college, and I love the GD's improv skills (which I am more than capable of "hearing"). I just don't think it's the be-all and end-all of GD songs, or "pieces," or "compositions," or "improvisational sections," or whatever you want to call them."

I have to agree with the esteemed counsellor on this point.

"We are all capable of listening, but not everyone can hear... "

And we do not all hear the same things in the same places. Though clich├ęd, two statements that ring with truth are:
1- different strokes for different folks
2-variety is the spice of life

Not sure what you mean... the umbrella of "dark starness" encompasses all of what they do. The idea of spontaneity and group cohesion, that is. I didn't mean to say that Dark Star itself was the only thing worth listening to!

I fully understood that you weren't discounting everything except Dark Star. It just seemed you were discounting some of the tight 3 to 5 minute tunes, both originals and covers, that were just as entertaining as the more extended jams.

"variety is the spice of life"

And without variety there would be no evolution.

Really, just wanted to say hi, Bill!
